    Default Maca safe in pregnancy?

    Hi all,

    i just found out from HPT that im pregnant. but i have a concern here, i have been using Maca to help with my infertility, and it seems to help with my problem. I actually had a miscarriage in jan, which i am not sure whether it is due to stopping maca. So, should i stop taking it or continue with it?

    Maca is GREAT for infertility! The Peruvians use it through pregnancy, child bearing years and menopause! Look at changing your diet up a bit, focusing on raw foods, smoothies, green juices. I'd aim at nourishing your bod from the inside!!! Xx

    I've read so many articles saying that it shouldn't be consumed during pregnancy and the Peruvians actually consumed it cooked rather than what we eat today. I've also seen a few sources saying it's safe. I have no idea what to believe so I've limited my use of it now while I'm in my first trimester and wouldn't have it more than once every week or two.
